Blackwork Embroidery Study Group and Tudor Tuesday SAL

Our local Embroiderer's guild has formed a blackwork study group. We meet once a month and had our first get together last Friday. Most of us worked on "Box of Delights" - something that was started at a workshop at one of our EGA meetings. Here's what I've done so far:


If you're at all interested in this type of stitching, there's a great website called Blackwork Journey. The free "Box of Delights" patterns can be found there.

If you have a minute, pop on over to Tudor Tuesday SAL blog. Believe it or not, Emily Pooley was able to recreate a life size Anne Boleyn in wax. She's GORGEOUS - and the story of how she created it is amazing! Enjoy!!
